Queen Beatrix visits Slovakia

Queen Beatrix begins a state visit to Slovakia on Monday afternoon. The visit aims to cement relations between the two countries and to emphasis how important it is for new EU member Slovakia to be part of the European family, news agency ANP reported.

The Dutch ambassador has undertaken a publicity offensive on the queen’s behalf and ABN Amro, with a new office in the capital Bratislava, is building a tower of orange tulips in the centre of the city.
